The Atlantic coast between Agadir and Essaouira is attractive because of its isolated location and beautiful scenery. It is difficult to reach on your own and this is the reason why it is worth a visit if you want to avoid the tourist resorts in Morocco. The area is only accessible by foot or by dromedaries. This trip is really special and exclusive. The beautiful beaches feature fine sand and the rocky headlands are stunning.
A stretch of dunes that resemble the Sahara end in the ocean, near fishing villages where the locals live off of the sea. In this region the time has stood still. You will see a part of Morocco which is very special. Our dromedaries carry your luggage and an educated, well trained official guide will show you the best locations and special traditions of this part of the country. Our cook will prepare delicious, healthy meals in the middle of nature in our encampment.
